"I received a phone call in January and was asked by Billie [Joe Armstrong] if I would like to fill in for him as the role of St. Jimmy in 'American Idiot' starting March 1 on Broadway," Havok tells AOL Music. "It was really, really thrilling. I was awestruck, just completely astounded and I couldn't believe it. To be on Broadway is something that I've dreamt about since I was very, very young. It was something that I spoke about wanting to do since I was very young and it was also something that I never ever thought could be possible with the decisions I've made in my life. So, to receive that call was really mind-blowing."
On the eve of his debut performance, Havok stopped by AOL Music's New York offices to discuss the differences between theater and performing in a punk band, the physical challenges of the role and his future with Blaqk Audio and AFI. Check out our exclusive video interview with Havok below and be sure to catch him onstage at New York's St. James Theater over the next two weeks.
